Chuckles Weekend Roundup


Welcome to my feature Chuckles Weekend Roundup where I will be looking at what books I've received, anything interesting I've done or bought or watched and other random stuff. I'll be taking a look back at what happened in my blogging world too, sort of like The Sunday Post that some of you do! 

Please note that I'll be visiting your STS/SP as normal, but I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow DISQUS to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I am the only one who does that on my social media! I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. Sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me because I deleted my account with them but I will persevere as it only happens the odd time!

Hi guys, it's the end of another week where I just didn't get enough done either around the house or on the blog. I just feel like I'm continually playing catchup every day and not getting time to have actual fun for the sake of fun. I never get time for Pinterest or bookcrossing these days which I loved. I'm not getting time to write reviews and I feel my blog catchup of comments and visits is too rushed. I'm not sure what the solution is but I plan to have a long hard think this weekend about the blog, the reading, the social time I get and how best to reorganise life in general! Deep huh! Maybe I'll get lucky and hit on some kind of magic solution while I consider things. 

Just a short catch up this week as I hardly slept last night again and I'm off to fall asleep on the comfy sofa while watching Aliens!

  1. Keeping up with blogs and everything else is challenging. That’s why I cut back on posting earlier this year. I’m happier with posting less often. Have a great weekend!

    1. I need to take a bit of time and find a solution to this never ending chaos I'm in at the moment! I think I might need to think about posting less but what to cut out is the issue!

  2. When you figure it out, let me know the magical solution. Survival Island looks awesome. Hope you have a restful weekend!

    1. I hope someone comes up with the solution to help us all out! I love my blog but this last month or two has just been a struggle to juggle everything!

  3. Sorry to hear this all seems to be becoming more of a chore than a delight at the moment. If you crack the magic formula I'd love the secret :-)

    1. I reckon it's more about my own mood than the actual blog-maybe I just need a rest for a few days to find my motivation again!

  4. I've been having issues fitting everything into a day, too. Endless to do lists, and that's before I even get to reading and blogging. I want to have time for everything, but I might have to admit that I don't and find some stuff to jettison!

    1. That's exactly my issue. I feel like there is too much to do, not enough time and trying to decide what to stop is the problem!

  5. I feel like I am always playing catch up! It is hard to find the right balance. I see you picked up Hex Marks the Spot. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did. Have a great week!

    1. I'm always amazed how you manage to cope with a schedule ten times busier than mine! I need to have a good long think about what I'm doing!

  7. If you come up with the answer please share! lol

    I've been taking days off from the blog so I can ya know...live life then I'm scrambling to write reviews.

    My reading is going well though.

    1. It's the endless puzzle isn't it! I don't want to cut things out of my life but I do need to make some kind of change! Argh, don't know what to do yet!

      Delete
  8. Good luck with the rethinking! It's so hard to manage everything and blogging will take up as much time as you allow it. there's always more to be done! I hope you find a happy middle. Have a great week!

    1. It's kind of like pondering the meaning of life and not getting very far! I'm still trying to think of a plan! I might need to use the weekend for catch up and blog visits and allow myself more time for reading and getting book reviews written during the week!

  9. Aliens is the bomb. "Why don't you put her in charge?" lol

  10. I'm always trying to find better ways to manage everything that goes into blogging. It's tough to fit in half of what I want to accomplish. I hope you are able to get a little insight this weekend into what you need.

    1. I came up blank sadly! Cutting a few blogs I follow isn't going to do more than save a few minutes so that isn't the answer. I think I need to get posts written during the week and do the odd blog visit and comment if time allows, then do my comment and visit main catchup during the weekend. Not quite decided yet!

  11. The Serial Killer's Daughter looks like it could be a wonderful thriller -- though I am not a fan of the title.

    1. The title sounds a bit YA for me and lacks the danger sound that a thriller like this should have. I'd have called it Daddy Darkness or something!

      Delete
  12. The Serial Killers Daughter sounds like I would love it. I read the Jasper Dent series and his father was a serial killer trying to train him to be. Which I thought was freaky as heck. I have missed your blog. I am trying to catch up with everyone.

    1. Don't worry Mary, life gets in the way of blogging a lot for me too!

  13. I'm always trying to think of a better use of time. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Maybe it can help me too.
